Base preparation

   The base surface should be strong, carefully cleared of dust, dirt, oils, and greases. Unstable and fragile parts of the base must be removed. Large unevenness of a walls, a crack, and a recess should be pre-aligned with one of the Plasters IVSIL. To correct uneven floors use one of self-leveling floors or screeds IVSIL TIE-ROD.

   Before the faceworking surface should be primed with IVSIL BAZOVAYA. Strongly absorbing bases (gaze and foam concrete, gipsum plaster, anhydrite floor) should be primed with IVSIL GLUBOKOGO PRONIKNOVENIYA (primer penetrator).

Mixing of mortar

   Dry mix is poured into a mixing bucket with clean water in the following proportion: 1 kg of dry mix for 0,21-0,24 l of water. Then it is thoroughly stirred, manually or with a mixing drill, until the mixture is homogeneous and elastic. The received mixture is left for 5 minutes and then stirred again. Prolonged period of this tile adhesive setting allows this mixture to be used within 4 hours.


   Adhesive solution is applied on basis with the help of a trowel and then is spread with a notched trowel. The size of notches depends on the size of a tile. Put a tile on the top of the mixture, which has just been applied, and press it to the surface. After being pressed, adhesive mixture should be covering not less than 65% of the tile’s surface, for ceramic tiles 20*20 (and bigger) and for ceramic-granite tiles - 80%. When used for exterior jobs, to provide 100% of tile’s cover with adhesive and to guarantee gluing to the surface, it is recommended to apply adhesive to the reverse side of the tile as well before to put it on the surface covered with the mixture.

   A tile must be laid within 10 minute from application of adhesive on the basis. Correction of the tile position can be done within 10 minutes after the tile is laid. There is no need to soak tiles in water before use. The air temperature and the temperature of the basis must be from +5° to +30°. Grouting of wall tiles can be done in 6-8 hours, grouting of floor tiles in 24 hours. In bad conditions (strong wind, direct sunshine, high or low temperature, highly absorbing surface) lifetime of the prepared mixture may be decreased.

   When used for heated floor systems, the system should be switched off before to start tiling and can be switched on again after adhesion process is fully finished (28 days). All technical characteristics of the adhesive are fully active at the temperature of 18-20ªC and 60% humidity level.

Consultation on the pplication materials



   Extra strong tile adhesive IVSIL GRANIT is cement based adhesive with mineral plasticizing agent and a set of polymer additives. It is used for types of ceramic tiles, especially tiles of big size and weight, tiles made of natural and artificial stone, marble, granite. It is used for exterior and interior jobs. Can be applied to concrete, aerated concrete, brickwork basis or over cement-lime plasters, surfaces of plasterboards and gypsum-fibre boards.

   This adhesive is extra strong and is characterised by a very high level of bonding with the basis surface (adhesion level not less than 12kg/sq.cm), which guarantees reliable long lasting result of tilling in any conditions. It is recommended for difficult maintenance conditions, including constantly changing temperatures and humidity levels, areas where the surface has to sustain high dynamic pressure and static conditions. It is frost resistant (not less than 50 cycles) and water resistant, therefore IVSIL GRANIT is recommended for tilling of facade, terraces or summer-houses in all climatic zones of Russia, from southern sub-tropics to Siberia with its severe winters.

   High strength of IVSIL GRANIT make it suitable for use in the areas, where there is a high probability of it to be bashed, for example in areas with lots of people, at the entrance halls or staircases; it can also be used for tiling of lower part of façade walls. The basic price of this adhesive for natural stone and ceramic-granite is 325 roubles.

Packaging and storage
The dry adhesive mix is delivered in 25 kg Kraft-bags. A storage warranty period in a dry premise in packaging materials of the manufacturer is 12 months from the date of the manufacturing, specified in packing.
The consumption
Average consumption 1,4 1,6 kg of a dry mix on 1 m. of a sq. surface at a thickness of a layer of a solution of 1 mm. The practical expense depends on degree of flatness of the base, size of a teeth of a spatula and a sort of an applied tile.
